Call for Workshops and Tutorials

Researchers and practitioners interested in organising a satellite workshop or tutorial in the context of ECMDA 2009 are invited to submit proposals on topics related to the conference.

The purpose of the workshops is to provide participants with a forum for

presenting novel ideas, and to discuss them in an open and interactive

atmosphere. Responsibility for the format and organisation of each

workshop rests with the submitters of the workshop proposal. The ECMDA conference organisers will provide rooms, audio-visual equipment, and other logistical support. The ECMDA organisers will offer the possibility of publishing the workshop proceedings in the CTIT Proceedings Series, with assigned ISBN/ISSN. The workshop proposals will be selected by the workshop chair, according to the advice of the ECMDA steering committee.

The purpose of the tutorials is to provide the latest research work and

advances in key areas related to MDA to both academic and industrial

participants. An industrial tutorial should focus on hands-on experience

in various aspects of MDA, including for example, modeling methodologies, transformation techniques, document and code generation, test generation and execution. Academic tutorials should focus on emerging areas of research including motivation, state-of-the-art, and advanced topics. The ECMDA organisers will provide rooms, audio-visual equipment, and other logistical support for the tutorials. Tutorial presenters will receive a minimum reimbursement of 600 Euros for travel and accommodation expenses (per tutorial), and will share the profits made on the tutorial for an audience above 10 people.
